Best Ice Cream in the La Crescenta area

I have a friend who is moving there and loves ice cream. I wanted to get some gift certificates for ice cream in the area. Thanks.

  1. Fosselman's is ten miles away but it's almost all freeway. Probably the best ice cream* in SoCal ...

    * as opposed to gelato ..

    Fosselman's Ice Cream Co

      "as opposed to gelato"

      If gelato is an acceptable substitute, some of the very best gelato in SoCal is available 9 miles away at Bulgarini Gelato in Altadena:

      Bulgarini Gelato
      749 E Altadena Dr, Altadena, CA 91001

      Note that they have unusual hours.

    2. Paradis at 2323 Honolulu Ave. in Montrose is a new spot to check out.

      1. Black Cow Cafe on Honolulu Ave serves exclusively Fosselman's and you can buy it by the scoop or larger quantities.
